Good evening lords and ladies, I'm Selren, just Selren and nothing more, I thought I'd take a gander at how things work around here.

One useful piece of information about me is that I'm quite skilled at crafting, and slightly less at blacksmithing.

Good morning Selren. I am Sir Decky of Cheshire, pleased to met you. I'm the roster keeper around these parts.

Blacksmithing you say, my horse could do with a good reshoeing. Go from this place and make me some of the finest horse shoes. I wish to ride it by the evening!


I said no to drugs but they just wouldn't listen.

Good afternoon sir. Would you care for a spott of tiffin? Considering this might be my last time serving you such lovelies. Considering the Commadore may be a little angered by the outcome of the trade agreement.

Why hello hello. Perhaps I could treat you to an ale down the local tavern once I am uninccapaciated. Show you how things are and such.

With the increase in money I would be able to make, I could even hire some extra hands so such travesties will not happen again. And further my ability to have a statement to increase my validity to increase my charge for such items. Thus increasing your profit.

Well sir. My entire family has been in servitude to a noble house. I don't think it would be so easy to sever such ties.
And would rather be enlisted in the Army than the Navy. Too high a risk of scruvy I've heard. So you see, but, one does suppose I could if it enable myself to cast asside my role as a servant. Otherwise I would rather join the army.

in a few short years you will be elevated to common nobility if you come with me now you can be much more than that and possibbly elevate your families status as a whole taking them out of the life of servitude!

think about my offer.

I say Lady Totington your humble Page wishes to enlist in her majesty's Navy under my command for the possibility of raising his families standing to lower nobility. if you would allow Confucianism: Connie Renolds to enlist I assure you it would be beneficial seeing as you were the precursor of a rising noble family.

Welcome back boyo. The servants quarters have been quieter without you. I had to run tripple shifts, what with the cargo movement and all. Now, you can start by making the Lords afternoon tiffin.

Since your absence there has been no slack around here. The times go on even after you are gone, so the larder is always fully stocked. Do you take me for incompetant?! This is a mannor and shall be kept up to regulation standards! The Lords and Ladies shall dine and gorge on the finest and most expensive foods while the surrounding populace shall starve. That is regulation! And we abide by it in this household.

(I forget, or at least I never knew; What year were you raised to Decky? Considering you would be a page or the like otherwise. I realised Lady Tottington should be addressed as "Your Grace" considering her standing.)

Learn to speak properly! It's pronounced "quiet", not quite. You could have said quite quiet to be grammaticaly correct. Because what you have said is not a grammaticaly correct sentance.

Now we have business to take care of. There seems to have been a damaged crate of Her Grace Lady Tottingtons favourite tea and we must go down to the docks to confront the man who sold them to me. Come come, grab your hat boy.

One has to agree that us blue blood are on the quiet side of late. I return though to beat you dear boy. The reason I hear you cry, I have none as yet but it I get such merriment out of it that it's hard for one to stop. Present your rump so it can met my foot with all its might.

That's Mr Reynolds to you. I'm still head of the household staff here my lad. And you shall obide to it when we are within the confines of the mannor. Outside is another matter.

Well lad, first we'll be heading off to the guild of merchants to sort out these papers and find out where this chap is. They have accounts of where to find them when on land you see. And our papers need to be sorted out as I've said. Official stamps and all of course. Needs multiple signatures. But know that they won't just give away details of their members to anyone, got to be of reputation in these parts and I've already been granted such privy information seeing as I purchase quite the number and multitude of things from the docks on behalf of the Lords and her Grace. So of course they us being on business on their behalf will affect things.
Just let me do all the talking. I know these gents. I'll introduce you after the technicalities have been taken care of.

Come along then Jeremia. We have a job to finish and it's best not to keep Her Grace waiting for her favourite tea any longer! Lest you want to be at the recieving end of a rather eary catapult. And I'll have to be the one to dipose of the body. You wouldn't want to put me through that would you? I've already got a lot of other duties to attend to and you wouldn't want to add to them aih? Hahaha. ~Pats the young Jeremia on the back heartely~ Not to worry boyo. We'll be back in time to prepare the Lords and Ladies supper.

Now, to the merchant guild!
